VeneersYou just visited Gina Piccioni, D.M.D. or John G. Hartmann, D.D.S. at River Forest Dental Studio for veneers and your teeth have never looked better. Now, you just have to keep them looking that way. Take care of your veneers properly and they should give you a beautiful, picture-perfect smile for years to come. Here's what you need to do.

1. Brush, Floss and Rinse Daily

Just because your veneers cannot get cavities doesn't mean that you don't have to take good care of them. Keep your veneers clean and protect your overall oral health by remaining in the habit of brushing twice a day and flossing and rinsing daily.

2. Avoid Forceful or Unnecessary Pressure to Your Veneers

Veneers are strong and durable, but bite or chew on a hard object the wrong way, and they might just chip, break or pop off. To avoid this, do not open bottles or plastic packaging with your teeth and don't chew on hard, non-food objects such as ice, bone, pencils or your fingernails.

3. Wear a Night Guard if Needed

Do you clench or grind your teeth at night? If so, you will want to make sure your veneers are well-protected, otherwise they could wear prematurely, break or even come off altogether. Ask your River Forest Dental Studio for recommendations on a night guard that will help keep your veneers protected.

4. Call Your Dentist with Any Questions or Concerns

Finally, if you have any questions or concerns about how to best take care of your veneers so they last for years to come, do not hesitate to give either Dr. Piccioni or Dr. Hartmann a call here at River Forest Dental Studio. Our dentists are committed to helping you look and feel your best, and they would love to help you out any way they can.
